After defeating a team from the Hunter River DGA in their previous match - the NDGA team played the next round against Shelly Beach GC on Saturday October 28 at Waratah GC.
The format for this event is you play in handicap order with the first 2 players playing matchplay without the benefit of handicap - and the other 4 play handicap matchplay.
With good wins to Jacob Dundas, Brij Ingrey and Caleb Bromley saw the teams tied at 3 all after the games were completed. Despite playing very well in his match against Jordan Garner, our Josh Robards went down 3 and 2.
With both teams tied - a sudden death playoff then took place between the No.1 players - Jordan Garner from Shelly Beach and Josh Robards from Newcastle.
Jordan was erratic for the first 3 holes, whilst Josh played a very steady game - before Josh visited the trees on the 4th playoff hole and Jordan closed out the match
A win to the boys from Shelly Beach and we wish them the best of luck in their next match against a team from the Central West area.
The NDGA team did us proud, with their golf and their attitude and I could not be prouder of their behavior after the disappointment of a close defeat. Special mention to Josh Robards who played very well and certainly extended his more fancied opponent.
